So this is awkward.
It’s the weekend and I’m doing a recap of last weekend. So not my fault. I blame WordPress for deleting my hours of hard work on Part 1. In retrospect, WordPress MAY have been looking out for my best interest considering the post ended with me pee’ing in a portable ‘bathroom’. I’ve never been good at seeing the signs.
Anyway, Jon was gone last weekend so I had a nice and relaxing selfish weekend at home. I did work quite a bit, but also got to catch up on time with good friends. It was a good time because it was time NOT spent at a concert or bar where yelling is required to communicate.
Erin and I met up for a long overdue solo brunch at Lucille’s. Neither of us had ever been there before so it was fun to try it out! The bloody mary’s were delicious, the weather was beautiful and the food was of the brunch variety so it should go without saying that we devoured it.
WHY is brunch so delicious and so bad for you? Another question – why does brunch always involve about 6 different beverages per person? We had a coffee, waters, two bloody mary’s, and a latte all on our tiny little table combined with beignet’s, two giant plates of food, miscellaneous sauces, brown sugar, creamer etc. It takes a lot of ingredients to make up a successful brunch I guess.
This weekend I also had the pleasure of hanging out with Miss Finley so her mom and dad could go enjoy a concert and night out. Excuse me did I say Miss Finely? I’m so sorry. What I meant to say was Princess Finley.
Finley is very unique and didn’t wan’t to follow trends by making just any old Valentines day cards for her parents. I took her to Target and let her choose an art project to make for them and she chose sea life window decals that she got to color herself : )
After Finley went to bed, Ashley came over to visit and watch the Grammy’s! Not much to report there except for how gorgeous Adele looked…
…and how much I hate Gwyneth Paltrow for looking this amazing…
I’m going to change the subject and stop boring you with my weekend and instead bore you with my Valentines Day! Yay!
Jon and I celebrated as married for the first time and it was really nice. We had a great dinner at Ocean Prime at Larimer Square. I always love going to Larimer because it’s so beautiful and festive 365 days a year.
I gave Jon a round of golf at the Princeville course in Kauai and he got me a beautiful bracelet from my favorite jewelry designer.
I ALSO received a single rose from the restaurant before we left and I decided to be incredibly generous and re-gift it…
…Happy Valentines day Marlo!
She went absolutely bonkers over it for about five minutes until she eventually turned it into a chew toy. Because she’s a cat/dog.
In honor of Valentines Day and of Love, here is a video for you all to watch. My best friend Vanessa is getting married this summer and these are her engagement photo’s! I did not take the photo’s for I did not yet have my camera nor do I live in Texas (where she lives). She did send me the raw files and I did my best at editing them on my ancient programs on my ancient laptop. I think they’re fantastic because THEY are fantastic. Enjoy!
